The ROTINA 420 R can handle large volumes. Its maximum capacity of 4 x 600 ml, 140 blood collection tubes or 16 microtitre plates makes it exceptionally suitable for use in medical diagnostics (clinical chemistry). It is also a reliable tool for long term use in biotechnology and pharmaceutical research laboratories.
The temperature of the centrifuge can be set to any value in the range -20 °C to +40 °C. The temperature can also be set in Fahrenheit. If toxic or infectious material is centrifuged, then the TÜV-tested accessories with bioseals can protect against aerosols.
Safety and comfort in the workplace using carriers with a single-hand clamp lock
The clamp lock of the 4780 carrier can be operated without difficulty with just one hand. The carriers can be comfortably carried by the clamp whether the lid is in place or not since, in contrast to the products from other manufacturers, the clamp is mounted on the carrier and not on the lid. If the lid is in place, the carrier can not only be carried with ease, it is also safe to transport.
- With the clamp in the “open” position the lid can be easily fitted and removed.
- With the clamp in the central position the carrier is sealed to prevent aerosol formation and can be safely carried to the centrifuge, workbench or another working space.
- With the clamp in the “close” position the carrier can be centrifuged without aerosol formation. The absence of aerosols has been verified by the TÜV in accordance with DIN EN 61010, Part 2-020
